    I used a sand bag between the diff and trolley jack. Worked fine. Alan.

    The CofG is apprx 1" forward of the joint for the back plate. If using a croc jack then you really need a cradle (as shown bt Micky on the stag) to hold the diff on the jack as you need to waggle the diff to get it out/in. That is why I use ropes around the three sticky out bits. Roger

    If you are careful you can do it with a standard trolly jack.

    Hi guys today I ramped up front of car ad tried again with my new tool, which is the top of a plastic water bottle with lots of tape around the cap area shoved into the rad' opening. I ran engine to warm and kept pumping the top pipe and some more bubbles came up. Also I put original temp sender on and the temp shows about 3/5. Overall I am comfortable but ordered a new voltage stabiliser to be sure the full loop is tested. I did find the laser heat pointer a great help and re-assurance. Last, the engine block fluid is still is a bit brown but I recently spoke to a bloke who is a heating specialist and he said avoid the acid flushes and just keep changing the water/coolant on a regular basis. He gave some good reasons and mainly it was based on it being too aggressive and an excuse for poor maint'. Top tips from the forum have been lifting front end, pumping top pipe, checking sender but an independent heat tool was a great help. what a great forum and community we have here. Rich
